  • Damir Doma Opening

    In News on

    I’ve been contacted by the office of Damir Doma, a French fashion designer, saying that my work is an inspiration for his Autumn Winter 2011-12 collection.  It’s great to hear that the work spoke to him.  To celebrate the opening of his space at L’Eclaireur, they are showing a few pieces of mine along with his work, his creative setting and etc.  There will be an opening at the space on 9/13 from 5-9pm.  The event happens as L’Eclaireur participates in Paris Design Week.  The event was made possible by the generous cooperation of Bodo Vincent Andrin, Founder & Managing Director of LIGANOVA, who is loaning the pieces for the duration of the show (September 13 – 22).  This marks the first public display of works from LIGANOVA’s LIGAart Collection.  It’ll be a fun thing to stop by if you are in Paris.

  • Working with 7th graders

    In News on

    I’ve been working with 7th graders to put up a show.  There is a fancy private school in my area with a
    program that lets the kids pick artists, interview them, do studio visits, curate a show with them, make
    a catalog, do the opening, and do everything else that’s involved in doing an official exhibition for the public.

    OK, they are 7th graders so they get help from their teacher.  Sue Heatley, besides working at the school,
    is also a sculptor herself and she is experienced in working with art institutions.  Please do not underestimate
    the tremendous feat of giving a good educational experience to a few dozen 7th graders while organizing
    a professional looking show!  She’s done a great job.

    I will have three pieces in the show.  And Drew will also have 3  pieces.  Let’s show up for the opening and make
    the kids happy!

    Here is the info about the show from the school:

    The Ross School Gallery presents its annual student-curated exhibition,
    highlighting the work of professional artists from the community. This year’s
    theme is “Passion and Process.” Curated by Ross School seventh graders,
    under the direction of art teacher Sue Heatley, the show will feature works
    by Hiroyuki Hamada and Drew Shiflett.  The students will host an Opening
    Reception on Wednesday, May 25, from 4 to 6pm. The public is invited.

    As in past years, the students took on various rolls to organize and present the
    show: they visited the artists in their studios, selected work, designed the
    installation, organized publicity, and wrote and produced a catalogue.

    They also had the opportunity to work with each of the artists in their studios
    and will showcase their creations alongside the artists in the show.

    Mr. Hamada’s sculptures start with wood, foam and plaster, and they are
    finished with textured and painted surfaces. Ms. Shiflett uses handmade papers,
    pencil and ink, watercolor and conte crayon with, as she says, “a focus on line,
    light, and texture” to create intricately detailed pieces that fall somewhere between
    drawing, painting and sculpture. The work of both artists is the result of very
    time-consuming and detailed processes.

    “Passion and Process” will be on view at the Ross Gallery through June 15.

  • Roger Williams University Show Is UP

    In News on

    Installing a show never gets boring. It’s usually filled with improvisations and surprise gifts of time and space. You go get your rental truck only to find the office is closed and you tell yourself that it wasn’t supposed to snow today… You finally get your truck and find it stuck in snow, making you wonder if it’s even possible to do it today. But things usually fall into the right places just like it did this time. We managed to hang the show with a tight schedule thanks to fine planning by the curator, Jess Frost, and the generous support of Roger Williams University.

    The school sits in the beautiful sea town of Bristol, Rhode Island. The school is named after Roger Williams who led an exciting life as a believer of freedom of religion and separation of church and state in 17th century North America. He was also an expert in native American languages (Thanks to Peter Edlund, a wonderful painter, for pointing me to Roger Williams’ life story).

    We have 7 paintings by Christopher Saunders and 6 sculptures of mine in the show. The show’s looking great and I’m happy and proud to be a part of it.
